Scarce letter from the last member of the Bonaparte dynasty
Description  

Prince Imperial of the French Bonaparte dynasty (1856–1879), and the only child of Napoleon III. His early death in Africa, at the hands of Zulu warriors, sent shock waves throughout Europe. ALS in French, signed “Napoleon,” one page both sides, 5 x 8, Camden Place letterhead, November 2, 1877. Letter to an unidentified gentleman. In part (translated): “In September I read your profession of faith made to the voters in Libourne…in your circular you thank those who voted for you. In it you affirm the principle of National Sovereignty. I am pleased by that and I rejoice in seeing a man of your distinction associate himself with a doctrine, the only one, which will permit the establishment of a truly national government in France in which all men of order will find their place due to their merits, a government which they can serve without losing anything of their dignity because such a government will be founded by the entire nation.” A bit of scattered soiling and a couple thin areas of surface loss to upper corners, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by an unsigned carte-de-visite. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
